2 workers hurt in construction accident near Orting

ORTING, Wash. -- Two workers were injured in a construction accident just before noon Thursday morning.

A vehicle popped out of gear at a rock pit near Brooks and Orvile Roads and began rolling downhill.

The vehicle rolled over one man's ankle while another guy jumped out of the way... and over an embankment, falling 30 feet. He was able to climb back up himself.

Both men were taken to a local hospital to be checked out.
